General

  • Norfolk Broads site in 80 acres of country park
  • Watersports centre less than five minutes’ walk away
  • Shop, bike storage and café next door

Say Pah to the passport, avoid the airport and don’t go a-broad for a holiday overflowing with activities and attractions – go to the Norfolk Broads instead.

You’ll find a wide range of all-weather things to do around Whitlingham Broad Campsite once you’re there: the Broads are in its back garden with a watersports centre less than five minutes’ saunter from your pitch; the city of Norwich is an easy 15 minutes by bike or bus, and the site is in 80 acres of country park with masses of room for kids to run around and with a network of walks stretching directly from it.

All the site is grass, but the country park landscape also takes in rivers, water meadows blooming with wildflowers, and wildlife-laden woodland with trees young and old. Sturdy (not disposable) barbecues are allowed on all pitches, or some firepits are available to hire from the Whitlingham team.

Just steps away from the accommodation fields are the three large lakes of the Great, Little and Conservation Broads: take a canoe out here or fish, picnic and wildlife watch from the banks. The Outdoor Education Centre a few minutes’ walk away has kayak and dragonboat hire and sailing and surfing courses as well as landlubber activities like archery and rock climbing.

Family washrooms are available at Whitlingham Broad for guests and other amenities include an onsite shop and cycle storage. A café is right next door, but local companies will deliver to your pitch if you fancy a takeaway for dinner: ask the team for their broad list of recommendations…

    The campsite was in an excellent location near a beautiful lake. The toilets/showers were extremely clean and well managed. The communication with the campsite owners before and during our stay was brilliant!

    Disliked: 

    In the toilets there are no plug sockets so no way to charge phones or use electronic equipment.

    Had a lovely stay at Whitlingham Broad Campsite. Location was great with lots of lovely walks and scenery and not too far from the city either.
    The facilities were great and well maintained throughout the stay. We particularly liked the wheelbarrows to help transfer camping gear too and from the car which was a lovely touch. Pitch was good and ability to hire fire pits was lovely in the chilly evenings. All in all a great stay and would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your wonderful review - we are glad you had a great time on site and hope to welcome you back again

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Sticking to the Broads – just at first – you’ll have the pick of waterside walks, watersports, cycling and wildlife spotting on the Whitlingham Broad doorstep.

The café next to the campsite has a visitor centre with interactive info on the Broads to help you narrow things down a bit, and you can also catch the river boat here into Norwich city centre. For something a little more unusual, a ski club is a smooth 10 minutes away.

Walks with a view are all around the site and within easy dandering distance: kids might like to monkey around on the child-friendly low ropes course through the nearby woods, in a spot where there’s also a play pirate ship to batten down the hatches at and an old lime kiln to have a peek at (be careful not to disturb the bats that roost there).

The Wherryman’s Way path along the Yare in the Yare Valley is also a Wherry good walk (and ends at a Wherry good pub); the 12 circular walks along its route are handy for those who don’t fancy following it all the 35 miles to Great Yarmouth.

Must see

  • Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery (2.2 kilometers)
  • Norwich Cathedral (2.2 kilometers)
  • Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum (2.4 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Blickling Hall, Gardens and Park (22.2 kilometers)
  • Horsey Windpump (25.5 kilometers)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
